First story: Officials Recommend Postponement of Halloween
It's dejá vu for kids in Katonah, Lewisboro, Bedford and Pound Ridge: A powerless Halloween.
Should locals stay home from trick-or-treating?
Peter Parsons, Lewisboro's supervisor, thinks so. "The Town urges its residents to postpone celebration of Halloween until after the emergency has ended," was the latest bulletin posted by his office to the town's emergency website.
Bedford Supervisor Lee Roberts said it will be very dangerous to trick-or-treat.
"We have had little progress with NYSEG," she said. "I cannot cancel Halloween but I hope people will realize that safety is the top priority. NYSEG has yet to dedicate a crew to our municipality so we cannot remove trees without the electricity being turned off first."
The Halloween Parade in Bedford Village scheduled for Wednesday has been cancelled.
The Bedford Hills Free Library has cancelled its Halloween parade and hopes to reschedule for next week.
After three days in a row of kids home from school, maybe no one's in the mood anymore for the "real" Halloween.
The Greenwich Village parade in Manhattan has been cancelled for the first time in its 39 year history, reported New York Public Radio, saying that the NYPD could not sacrifice that many officers at such a crisis time.
Finally, there is a really indoors option: put the kids to bed early and watch some Movies Made Here.
Remember Patch is still having a contest costume you can submit your photos to and enter to win $5,000. So if you put on your costumes at home today, snap photos and share them on Patch. Details here.
